I've not read previous books by Sizemore and I'm not even sure if this is a series or not. Reading it, it felt like one. I wondered if Sizemore was repeating instances from previous novels or just giving flashbacks. It was hard to decide which. I do know that the story started off with a vampire, Sid, and a werewolf, Joe. Sid and Joe apparently had a relationship in the past when Sid screwed it up. Sizemore flips back and forth between the past and present day to explain this.
Then...halfway through the book she jumps to another story between the vampire Tony and the human woman Rose. Tony had to give up Rose because his mommie said so. Sizemore again flips back and forth between the past and the present day.
All this flipping and switching characters was very confusing. Sizemore does NOT have a talent in this area to smoothly transition between people, places, and time. It would have been a better story if she would have stuck with one set of characters and time.
I did not find this an enjoyable read, which may in part be due to the fact that I did not read the previous books in the series. I found the two page chapters broke up the story into disconnected pieces and the jumping between many time periods distracting...and really, are sixty one chapters in 300 pages really necessary? Some of the concepts in the book were interesting (such as vampires producing a "dawn" drug so that they could go out in daylight), but the writing skipped around too much and lacked details and just didn't hold my interest. None of the characters were sufficiently fleshed out so that the reader cares what happens to them, they don't really have personalities. I won't be reading the rest of the series and can't really recommend this novel as a satisfying read.
Joe has hated Sid for what he perceives as `mind rape' and once his memories are unlocked, freeing the details of their passionate encounters, he is even angrier at her betrayal. But when a mission for the Dark Angels, a special ops group of supernaturals dedicated to protecting their races from threat of discovery and annihilation, forces Joe and Sid into close contact, Joe is having a hard time maintaining his anger and an even harder time thinking at all because of the overwhelming desire he still feels for Sid.
But Sid and Joe's isn't the only romantic reunion in the book. Sid's sire Tony has finally decided to claim the woman, Rose, he has loved for 60 years - the human woman he was ordered to leave behind by the matriarch of his clan.Read more ›
